Private Equity

Our team has vast knowledge in the design of tailor-made strategies for structuring corporate purchases, key acquisitions, or investments in privately and publicly held companies. Our advice includes clients on hostile offers (both local and with cross-border implications), regulated tender offers to privatize companies, as well as divestments and purchases of minority holdings.

Our experience includes advising clients in the formation and day-to-day activities of private equity funds, as well as the sponsoring companies and their management. We regularly incorporate regulated and non-regulated Mexican and foreign private equity funds.

Venture Capital

Venture Capital is one of the most sought-after practices in our firm. As result of the evolving landscape of the startup ecosystem in Mexico, our country has become fertile ground for entities both domestic and foreign investors to explore successful business opportunities. 

As more of these companies turn to venture capital as a way of raising funds, we have developed a long-standing strategy of both, incorporating new entities, and preparing for investment and eventual exits. 

In addition, we regularly represent angel investors looking for opportunities in the market, where we help them mitigate risks and due diligence matters.
